The Kenyan Government has taken bold steps to expand access to education at all levels in the country. The Government is providing free primary education and support to vulnerable groups such as learners with special needs and regions that have lagged behind in education.
These initiatives have increased primary school enrollment by over 2 million in the last four years. Kenya is now spending 220 per cent higher on education in the last 4 years. Secondary school sub-sector enrollment has increased from 778,000 to 1,030,000, while enrollment at university level has grown from 80,000 to 112,200 over the last four years. The Government has fully liberalized the telecommunications sector and has approved major telecommunications projects aimed at bolstering the potential in this sector to improve connectivity and the implementation of the Rural Access Project to extend connectivity to the rural areas.
